Update on the pandemic

Here's the usual update as at Friday 14th January. Last week’s figures in brackets.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough has dropped sharply to 1,605.5 (2,325) per 100,000, which is above the national average of 1,585 (1,878.2). New cases per day are down at 673 (975). This is below the national rate which is at 99,652 (178,250). Stockport NHS hospitalisations in the week to 9th January were up slightly at 113 (105).

On vaccinations in Stockport Borough, 233,638 (233,221) have had a first vaccination which is 86.9% (86.8%) of the 18+ population. 217,699 (216,940) have had a second dose which is 84.3% (84.2%) of the 18+population. 172,790 (169,401) have received a booster which is 68.1% (66.7%) of the 18+ population.

The new rules on testing and isolation are summarised as:

If you have a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) which is positive, there is no requirement to have a PCR (but see * below). If you test negative on two successive occasions 24 hours apart you can cease isolation as early as day 6 after a 5th and 6th day negative.

*If you have symptoms you still need to book a PCR.

You still need a PCR in 3 specific cases (if on TTSP, part of a research programme or identified as at special risk). Rules are different for travellers returning to the UK.

The area data is as follows, giving rates of infection per 100,000 over the last five weeks, latest last. Data as at 9th January

Update on the pandemic

Here's the usual update as at Friday 10th December. Last week’s figures in brackets.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough has risen sharply again to 462.8 (392.6) per 100,000, which is still below the national average of 502.1 (447.2). New cases are up at 188 (165) per day. Stockport NHS hospitalisations in the week to 5th December are steady at 22 (21).

The number of people who have received a first dose of the vaccine is 231,473 (230,145) which is 86.5% (86.3%) of the entire 18+ population. 213,473 (212,227) or 83.5% (83.2%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. 109,758 (93,034) including 94.3% (91.7 %) of the 70+ population have received a booster dose. Boosters are being offered in order of descending age. 
 
The vaccination walk in centre in Merseyway is offering free covid vaccinations from 10.00am to 3.00pm Thursday to Saturday until 18th December.
 
The area data is as follows, giving rates of infection per 100,000 over the last five weeks, latest last. To help get this in proportion, I am adding at the end the total cases in 7 days to 6th December. Some people last week weren’t sure what this means. Each area has a different population. The “rates” are per 100,000 population, so comparable as a rate of infection. The figure in brackets is the actual number of cases.

Update on the pandemic

Here's the usual update as at Friday 3rd December. Last week’s figures in brackets.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough is at 392.6 (387. 8 ) per 100,000, which is still below the national average of 447.2 (437.1). New cases are steady at 165 (162.6) per day. Stockport NHS hospitalisations in the week to 28th November are steady at 21 (21).

A reminder that Government advice has changed on the use of lateral flow tests, which are now commonly available locally for home testing and which people are being encouraged to use to manage periods of risk. Rules are changing regularly on overseas travel too so best to double check before travelling.

The number of people who have received a first dose of the vaccine is 230,145 (229,491 two weeks ago) which is 86.3% (86.2%) of the entire 18+ population has now reached 86.3% of the 18+ population. 212,227 (211,661) or 83.2% (83.1%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. 93,034 (83,950) or 91.7% (89.6%) of the 70+ population have received a booster dose.

Update on the pandemic

Here's the usual update as at Friday 26th November. Last week’s figures in brackets.

The rate of infection in Stockport Borough has risen back again this week and is now at 387.8 (301.6) per 100,000, which is still below the national average of 437.1 (418.3). New cases are also up at 162.6 (126) per day. Stockport NHS hospitalisations in the week to 21st November are down to 21 (36).

Government advice has changed on the use of lateral flow tests, which are now commonly available locally for home testing and which people are being encouraged to use to manage periods of risk.

I don’t have a figure for first dose vaccinations except that the figure last week (229,491 (227,995) which is 86.2% (86.1%) of the entire 18+ population) has now reached 86.3% of the 18+ population. 211,661 (211,163) or 83.1% (83.0%) of the 18+ population have now received two doses. 83,950 (71,472) residents have received a booster dose which includes 89.6% (85.5%) of the 70+ population. 
 
The area data is as follows, giving rates of infection per 100,000 over the last five weeks, latest last. I’ve revised these figures having done a check back over the last five weeks where some have been adjusted.

Marple Bridge and Mellor: 507.6/592.2/490.7/372.3/643.0
Marple and Hawk Green:   690.1/656.5/370.3/336.6/303.0

Seeing as you ask so nicely, Melancholy, I will do my best  ::)

The New York Times is a useful source. Here is their current map of the infection:  https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/world/covid-cases.html?campaign_id=51&emc=edit_mbe_20211101&instance_id=44290&nl=morning-briefing%3A-europe-edition&regi_id=131392532&segment_id=73200&te=1&user_id=0567d0c3c99811ba543e2a321b874cd4

Here's a sample of current European infection rates per 100,000 population, as listed:

UK: 61
Germany:27
France: 8.9
Portugal 7.7
Italy: 7.3
Spain: 4.1.

The reasons their infection rates are generally lower than ours have been the subject of much analysis by all the epidemiologists and other pundits who ave emerged since Covid first hit us.  They don't all agree, of course, but the general view seems to be that the lower rates of infection in mainland Europe are because of a combination of factors:

The UK started vaccinating earlier than some other countries, and we therefore are seeing waning immunity
Many countries in mainland Europe require masks to be worn indoors and on public transport, but we don't
'Vaccine passports' are widely required for entry to bars and restaurants, theatres, concerts, and even (for example, in Italy) to go to work.
Other countries have been quicker to vaccinate teenagers than we have - this is a useful link about that:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-58516207.

I hope that information is helpful Melancholy.

“Sensible” means indoor masks, opening windows, vaccinating teenagers, and vaccine passports. Those are the measures in place in many countries in mainland Europe and they have got infection under much better control than we have.

Name the countries concerned, and show how their measures in themselves have directly led to fewer infections.
